RJH Tool Offsets Screen Example

  • Use the LEFT and RIGHT cursor arrow keys to select the jog rate.
  • Use the UP and DOWN cursor arrow keys to highlight menu options.
  • Press the NEXT function key to change to the next tool.
  • To change the tool offset, highlight the TOOL OFFSET field and use the pulse jog knob to change the value.
  • Use the jog knobs and axis selector knob to touch off the tool. Press the SETL function key to record the tool length.
  • To adjust the tool length, for example, if you want to subtract from the tool length the thickness of the paper you used to touch off the tool:
    1. Press the ADJST function key.
    2. Use the pulse knob to change the value (positive or negative) to add to the tool length.
    3. Press the ENTER function key.
  • If your machine has the Programmable Coolant option, you can adjust the spigot position for the tool. Highlight the COOLANT POS field and use the pulse jog knob to change the value. You can use the M08 function key to turn on the coolant and test the spigot position. Press that function key again to turn off the coolant.
